Marjorie Bates produced a large number of "topographical" scenes which were turned into framed prints by a local printing firm in Nottingham (probably W.A.Lewitt of Friar Lane, Nottingham).

Many of these prints were framed by Boots (the existing Boots the Chemists retail chain whose head office is in Nottingham and who ventured into all kinds of sidelines in the early 1900s). Note that the value of these prints is relatively low, although they seem to be appreciated by many people for their elegant composition. Panvertu gets a lot of inquiries concerning these prints but there is little more to say and their value makes them of little interest commercially.
